Depending on what newsreader program you use to make your postings,
you can completely hide your e-mail address (as I am doing).  I use
Free Agent by Forte.

hotmail / yahoo for newsgroup use only

    It is advisable to make sure that you don't inadvertantly direct
spam to somebody elses valid email address.

    Personally I prefer to post to USENET with my real email address
so that if you don't like what I am saying you can tell me personally
instead of annoying the group with off topic postings (like this one).
